The sightseeing from the plane was ok, were able to get a glimpse into icefield which was pretty spectacular but the commentary ruined the experience for me. They played a completely outdated pre recorded narrative during the flight. It was so incorrect and antiquated that I left feeling offended. I was so shocked at the way it portrayed glacial health...

Getting to the Taku Glacier Lodge was an adventure in itself. The only way to get here is via a seaplane and boy was that a breathtaking ride especially with all the sightseeing wherein you get to see quite a few glaciers along the way. Once you land on the Lodge, there's is much to do. They fed us salmon... More

One of the coolest experiences I have ever been on! Our pilot was such an incredible guide and teacher. The views you witness are breathtaking and are memories to last a lifetime! Worth every penny you will not be disappointed! Love the float plane experience so smooth and every passenger had their own window view! We were here in May... More

We chose the Glacier tour sans Taku Lodge. We loved it! It is expensive but if I could choose only one Alaska tour, this would be it. We've never been in a float plane so that alone was pretty cool and to see those mountains and glaciers from the air, it was breathtaking. I got there early to see if... More

I booked a flight for glacier viewing but when our ship arrived in port the cloud cover was pretty total and when we got to the hut we were told the flight was cancelled. We were offered a later slot when the weather was expected to clear but unfortunately we were unable to do this due to another commitment. The... More

8 passenger plan flies over glaciers with beautiful views. Everyone has a window seat with headset. Staff friendly. Go to Taku Lodge. Quaint setting. Knowledgeable staff tells history of lodge. Wonderful BBQ salmon lunch with the best baked beans I've ever had. Can walk trail to explore after lunch. Small gift shop. Can't say enough about this excursion that we... More

My wife had a severe stroke 13 years ago and has extremely limited use of her right arm and leg. We were concerned about whether or not she would be able to board the Floater Plane and if so, how she would get from the dock to the lodge which we were told was around 150 yards from the dock....

This trip was awesome. The food was delicious. I don't like salmon and I almost opted out to get the chicken, but I didn't. It was the best salmon and cooked to perfection. The flight was awesome and the people there were great. I highly recommend this excursion!
